The Centre for African Entrepreneurship Research was established in 2011 to inculcate an entrepreneurial culture capable of driving productivity, generating socio-economic wealth and fostering independence and employability amongst the university students. It seeks to promote entrepreneurship research by fostering collaborative research and knowledge sharing with governments, academic institutions, multilateral agencies and foreign institutions, etc.
The guiding principle of the Centre for African Entrepreneurship Research is to facilitate the development of creative minds, innovative, highly productive and entrepreneurial personalities who are prepared for leadership responsibilities in industry, government and non-profit organizations; and who are developed to establish new enterprises, reinvent organizations, create new jobs and nurture a sustainable enterprise culture.
